Orthopaedic physical therapy can be life-changing. A skilled physical therapist (PT) can get you back on track with your daily activities after surgery, an injury, accident, or illness.
That’s because an orthopaedic PT specializes in diagnosing and treating conditions that affect any part of your musculoskeletal system.
An orthopaedic PT works to integrate all your other bodily systems — especially your neurological and cardiovascular systems — with your musculoskeletal system to treat your injury or condition appropriately.
In this article, we’ll take a closer look at what orthopaedic physical therapy is, when you may need it, and the types of treatments it includes.
This is the branch of physiotherapy concerned with the treatment of injuries or disorders of the skeletal system and associated muscles, joints and ligaments Orthopaedic Physiotherapy also includes pre and post-operative rehabilitation of hip, shoulder and knee. An orthopaedic Physiotherapy is a scientific approach to treatment following Evidence-Based Guidelines. Initially the physiotherapist will carry out a clinical assessment and this is followed by appropriate treatments. It is important to get to the source of the problem and prevent a re-occurrence. The treatment goal of the orthopaedic physiotherapist is to provide pain relief, increase joint range, improve strength and flexibility and restore the patient to full function.
The shoulder is comprised of a shallow ball and socket joint which is largely dependents upon the surrounding soft-tissue structures including tendons, ligaments, and muscles (rotator cuff muscles) for carrying out smooth motion and maintaining stability. As there are large numbers of movements related to shoulder, it depends enormously on ligaments and rotator cuff muscles for achieving the optimal synchronization.
Following are the most common shoulder disorders:
- Impingement/rotator cuff
- Adhesive capsulitis/capsular restriction
Our physiotherapists will conduct thorough subjective and objective assessments by taking a number of factors into consideration. These factors include sporting technique, referred pain, biomechanical, and postural issues.
The treatment may include.
- Good exercise prescription
- Theraband Strengthening
- Postural changes to ‘deload’ the joint
- Maintaining smooth functionality of surrounding joints by using Capsular stretches and conducting Matrix Therapy
Early accurate diagnosis and prompt physiotherapy treatment will result in raid improvements and better outcomes.
The elbow is comprised of bones, tendons, and three joints that enable movement of our arm. It is the point of connection of the two bones of the forearm, radius & ulna, and the bone of the upper arm, the humerus. This connection between two vital bones is covered by a layer of thick and shiny articular cartilage that absorbs shock and allows the bones to glide smoothly against one another. Injuries related to the elbow can occur due to overuse or sudden trauma. Keeping the cause aside, the injury brings excruciating pain and difficulty in performing daily activities.
Common Elbow injuries include:
- Tennis Elbow (aka lateral epicondylitis)
- Golfers Elbow (aka medial Epicondylitis)
- Nerve entrapment
- Referred pain
Accurate diagnosis is essential for appropriate management of any elbow pain.
Precise assessment and quick treatment will restore the regular functions of elbow and eliminate pain as rapidly as possible.

The knee is formed with three parts including tibia, which is shine bone or larger bone of lower part of leg, femur, which is thigh bone or upper leg bone, and patella, which is a kneecap. It is the most vulnerable joint in the body which undergoes a lot of stress in everyday life. Two long leg bones are kept together strongly with muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Each end of the bone is enveloped with a layer of cartilage to absorb the shock and protect the knee. Owing to its most vulnerable nature, knee issues occur with ageing and relentless wear & tear of joints.
Common injuries of the knee include:
- Knee joint injuries
- Iliot ibial Band Syndrome
- Shin Splints
- ‘Runners’ Knee
- Sprains & tears of soft tissues
- Patellofemoral Syndrome
- Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Injuries
- Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL) Injuries
- Collateral Ligament Injuries
- Meniscal tears
- Tendon tears
In many cases, knee injuries are related to more than a structure in the knee. Pain and swelling are the most common signs of knee injury. However, few knee injuries result in instability, which makes you feel that your knee might be ‘giving way’, ‘catching’, or ‘locking up’.
With a thorough assessment and rapid treatment from professional and experienced physiotherapists, many knee injuries are treatable by taking simple measures such as bracing and rehabilitation exercises.

The hip is the largest joint in the human body. Along with bearing the weight of the body and offering stability, it performs a wide range of movements. Lower limb biomechanics involving knee, foot, and ankle can affect hip functions. The hip joint is an intersection of the pelvis, Sacroiliac joint (SIJ), and lumbar spine (lower back). This intersection makes this a complex region to appropriately analyze and evaluate any dysfunction.
Common injuries of the hip include:
- Bone Fracture
- Groin strain
- Hamstring strain
- Osteoarthritis (most common)
- Other forms of inflammatory arthritis e.g. Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Irritable Hip syndrome
The majority of hip injuries arise after the age of 60. This occurs majorly due to a higher rate of osteoporosis, which causes the loss of bone tissues. This disease can occur at any age due to accidents or operating in inappropriate positions for a long time.
A thorough examination and early treatment can prevent and cure hip injuries as quickly as possible. Visit the experienced physiotherapists in Pune.
Neck pain is one of the common problems experienced by nearly two-thirds of the population. Though a patient feels the pain in the neck, it can be caused by various problems. These include postural abnormalities, deep neck muscle weakness, muscle tightness occurring in the neck or upper back, or pinching of the nerves stemming from the cervical vertebrae.
Joint disruption in the neck or the upper back may cause pain. Moreover, neck pain may originate secondary to the injury, other health issues, or stems from other areas or structures of the body.
An extensive analysis by our physiotherapist and prompt treatment can relieve patients from neck pain. Visit our experienced physiotherapists in Pune.
Another spinal conditions faced by the general population across the world is back pain. Nearly 60–80% of the population undergoes back pain at some point during their lifetime.
Types of back pain:
- Upper back pain
- Lower back pain
- Tailbone pain
Back pain can be a sharp, piercing, dull, or just a burning sensation. According to the research, approximately 98% of the back pain patients have been treated with non-specific acute back pain with no serious underlying pathology.
On the other hand, secondary back pain contributes to nearly 2% of the cases and involves underlying pathologies including metastatic cancer, abscesses, or referred abdominal organ pain. However, these pathologies do not contribute to the most common causes of back pain.
